Angry Frequent Urination. Please help

I'm a 19 year old male. For over 5 years, I have had a problem with frequent urination. I asked my doctor about it, and he just said I had a small bladder and there wasn't much to do about it. However, he didn't do any exams or any types of tests at all. I don't know why I didn't question him about his answer, but I have no belief in what he said. Anyone know what I should do?

P.S. - There is no pain, discomfort, or blood. It's just as if I drank a lot lf liquids.
- Nervousness triggers it as well.

Andrew29, I have the same problem and have had it as long as I remember (Iím 38 now). I probably urinate, on average, 15 Ė 20 times a day. It sucks! Itís really a handicap at times, such as during extended meetings at work.

Iíve seen a Urologist and a Neurologist about it and had numerous tests done (MRI, and very unpleasant invasive scope tests). They have yet to identify a cause, but they call the condition in general ďUnstable BladderĒ, and they suspect it is some sort of neurological condition.

I find that coffee really makes it worse, as does alcohol. The good news is that my urologist told me that we donít need to drink nearly as much water as we have been told over the past 10 years or so. Iíve done some reading and recent research seams to support this. I get about 36 Ė 50 ozs of water per day now, and Iíve cut back on the coffee, and it has helped somewhat, but it is still a real problem.

Anyone else have this problem???

I agree with Sportsdad re alcohol and coffee. For me they are definite irritants. If you drink these items, maybe limit how much you consume. Also, try to drink 8oz & do not drink anymore until after you void, & then of course, drink another 8oz. See how your body reacts. I'm been practicing the above, & boy, what a difference!! M PS. For the last 2 wks I've limited by coffee intake to 2-4 cups per wk. Blended ice coffee drinks - good for summer!
